We end our week of Masked Western Heroes with the final tale of... he returns to where he began, the back of a book starring Tim Holt!
After runs in Tim Holt, Bobby Benson's B-Bar-B Riders, his own title, and the anthology Best of the West, The Ghost Rider finally reached the end of the trail in #50 (1955) of Tim Holt's book, which had been retitled Red Mask!
This swan song was scripted by Carl Memling and illustrated by The Rider's co-creator Dick Ayers, both of whom would be working the very next issue on a strip about another masked hero who used tricks on villains...The Presto Kid, who took over Ghost Rider's slot until Red Mask was cancelled.
